Abertay Plans for 43 New Homes

Published: 30/01/18

Ambitious proposals to provide 43 new affordable homes in Dundee have been submitted for planning permission by Abertay Housing Association and CCG. The plans will see much needed modern, energy efficient homes built on the site of the former Charleston Primary School.

The design team of Oliver and Robb and Scott Bennett Associates, have skilfully mixed two, three and four terraced, semi-detached and detached homes together with cottage flats to provide ground floor wheelchair provision, all within close proximity of local amenities such as shops, play areas and the Charleston Community Centre and library.

Abertay Chief Executive, Ian Thomson commented:

“We are delighted both to be continuing our commitment to the Charleston community, and to be working with an innovative partner such as CCG. These 43 houses are not only important to the local community, but also play a part in the provision of new housing across the city. Abertay remain committed to providing more new homes as well as investing in the homes of our current tenants.”

Calum Murray, Director of CCG, added:

“CCG’s approach to housing delivery has been broadly based in the central belt of the country however in recent years, we have branched further afield to areas such as Perth and Dundee as the country strives to meet the Government’s 2021 housing target. We are delighted to be working with Abertay Housing Association as we return to the city to bring much needed affordable housing. The homes will be constructed using the CCG iQ timber frame system which is manufactured in our bespoke CCG Offsite Manufacturing (OSM) facility located in Cambuslang, a process that will ensure quality, enhanced environmental performance and when on site, a faster speed of build.”
